SPECIALIST PILATES TESTIMONIALS
Having messed my lower back around very badly by playing rugby for too long, I found myself approaching 60 with chronic lower back pain, which interfered with sleeping and many aspects of general living. I was assessed by an orthopaedic surgeon who offered injections or 'physio'. It was suggested that Pilates could play a useful role and Hayley was recommended to me. Since the summer Hayley has visited for one-on-one Pilates sessions and her input is allowing me to make a significant difference to my condition. I think the fact that Hayley brings a set of professional competencies alongside her very natural ability to empathise means that you feel extremely confident about her suggestions. Over the years I have worked with, or been worked upon, by every kind of physical practitioner imaginable and I would unhesitatingly place Hayley above all of them. That said, in the end she can only do so much, ultimately it comes down to how hard you're prepared to work and to put into action the advice that she gives you.
